Unless they were in the first three Star Wars movies, we have no idea who anyone in the Star Wars Episode VII cast is playing in the film. Until the day comes that someone at Disney and/or Lucasfilm decides to let us in on the secret, we’re going to have to rely on rumor and intuition to guess who’s playing who in the film. But today’s bit of speculation seems to hint at the idea that one of the film’s new female cast members: Daisy Ridley, Gwendoline Christie and Lupita Nyong’o, is playing a villainess in Episode VII.

It’s no secret that Mark Hamill is coming back to do a little face time in Star Wars: Episode VII. Of course, he and the other old cast members aren’t exactly in the same sort of shape as they were back in the day. Then again, the new movie takes place quite a few years after Return of the Jedi, so their characters aren’t supposed to be spring chickens anymore either. But a Jedi is a Jedi and even 62-year-old wielders of a lightsaber best be ready to do some damage to the Dark Side if the moment demands. Now, Hamill is stepping up to chat a bit about how he’s prepping to take on Episode VII, as well as a few other things. He’s also showing off his lightsaber pose, just in case you’re skeptical about whether he can even lift the thing anymore. Check it out below. (more…)

With a total of two unauthorized set photo dumps in the last week, Star Wars Episode VII seems like a leaky row boat. Hey, stuff happens, right? I mean, how many cell phone videos of Batman’s final fight with Bane in The Dark Knight Rises appeared on You Tube while that movie was shooting in Pittsburgh? Well, J.J. Abrams isn’t pleased. The filmmaker behind the upcoming Star Wars sequel posted a picture to Twitter that was a little tongue-in-cheek, but nonetheless reminded fans that the director know for his privacy on-set, would kind of like it back again.

Sorry Sports Fans, Henson’s Creature Shop Not Part of the ‘Episode VII’ Team

When J.J. Abrams, everyone’s favorite genre director, posted online yesterday a video inviting fans to enter an auction to win a role in Star Wars Episode VII, it offered a tantalizing look at the Abu Dhabi set of the film, and then some weird look ostrich man carrying a bunch of cages walked out behind Abrams, and everyone said, “Hey, that looks cool.” Cool-looking aliens are no stranger to the Star Wars set, but they usually only look cool after several months of post production, since during the prequels it seemed like George Lucas had abandoned practical effects completely. But inquiring fans want to know, did Abrams go pro with his ostrich man? Did he recruit the fine people at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to bring these new alien creations to life? The answer comes right after the break… (more…)
